my Pinterest boards so I can more easily find recipes. I also took all my loose recipes from magazines that I had been throwing in a binder, found them online, and pinned them. Now whenever I want to try a new recipe, I just have to search through my Pinterest boards.
One of my recent favorite Pinterest recipe finds was Crock Pot Balsamic Roast Beef from the blog Add a Pinch. I made this for the first time over Christmas break and it took almost no time to prepare (bonus), and it was delicious on a sandwich.
Balsamic Roast Beef, adapted from Add a Pinch
- 3-4 pound boneless roast beef (chuck or round roast)
- 1 cup beef broth
- ½ cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon honey
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped
1. Mix all ingredients, except for beef, in a bowl.
2. Place beef in a slow-cooker and then pour balsamic mixture over top.
3. Cook beef for 4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.
4. Once beef is done, place on a cutting board or large serving dish and shred with two forks.
5. If you're using the beef for sandwiches, place beef back in the slow-cooker for a few minutes to let it soak up more of the balsamic liquid mixture. If you're not using it for sandwiches, ladle 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the liquid mixture to the beef and reserve the rest for another use.
I have found that my favorite way to eat this roast beef is on a toasted Mexican torta roll with provolone melted on top. I think I ate about five of these sandwiches over the course of a week after I made the roast beef.
